LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board on Tuesday announced an 18-member women's squad for the tri-series in Ireland and the Commonwealth Games 2022 in Birmingham.
The same squad that featured in the recently concluded three-match T20I series at home against Sri Lanka has been selected for the tri-series in Ireland which features Australia as the third team, and the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
It was Pakistan women's first T20I series sweep against Sri Lanka, and following their successful outing, the selectors have retained the same outfit for the two upcoming projects.
"Following a successful series against Sri Lanka, we have decided to retain the same winning combination. Not only senior cricketers in the side displayed great cricketing acumen also our youngsters were outstanding and have raised their hands whenever the team needed them to," said Asmavia Iqbal, the national women's team's chief selector in an official statement.
